Coming to PlayStation Plus: Our Biggest Publish Yet!

PlayStation Plus

Hi everyone,

I’m happy to let you know that we’ll offer our biggest PlayStation Plus publish to date coming up in December just in time for the Holidays! We will be giving more than $50 of content over the next two weeks, essentially paying for a full year’s subscription to PlayStation Plus, making December a great month to sign up.

Sam & Max: The Devil's Playhouse 2 Sackboy’s Prehistoric Moves

Kicking things off on December 7 is the LittleBigPlanet spin-off PSN title, Sackboy Prehistoric Moves. Enjoy 10 unique Move-enabled levels on a multiplayer adventure filled romp through the land of dinosaurs. Best of all, PlayStation Plus subscribers get Sackboy Prehistoric Moves free AND a week before everyone else.

Earlier this year, European PlayStation Plus subscribers were given a full season download of Sam & Max: The Devil’s Playhouse, regularly priced at $34.99. We heard the feedback that US subscribers would like the same content and are happy to report that all five episodes will be available to US PlayStation Plus subscribers on December 14 as well.

Along with Sam & Max, we are discounting Marvel Super Hero Squad PSP for those PlayStation Plus subcribers that have a PSP. Gamers can take Blue Tongue’s humorous outlook on the Marvel universe for a spin. Marvel Super Hero Squad PSP will be available for 50% off starting December 14. These three games barely scratch the surface of the upcoming PlayStation Plus content publish, so be sure to check the full release list down below.

As always, here’s a friendly reminder to pick up the content that will be removed from PlayStation Plus, including free downloads of Shatter, DYNOGEMS, Oddworld: Abe’s Exoddus, and a discount on Landit Bandit, Hustle Kings, Crash Bandicoot 2, and MAG DLC.

Finally, if you haven’t signed up yet, check out our offer giving new subscribers of a full year of PlayStation Plus an additional three months for free.

December’s PS Plus content has a value well over the price of a full year subscription, and I like the fact that in one month alone, I’m getting content which amounts to what I paid for my PS Plus membership.

The one thing I want to see monthly, along with games, themes, and avatars, is free PS Home items, like the Burn Zombie Burn item we get this month. It would be nice to get free Home items or personal spaces.

Nice update. But I’m a little disappointed that Prehistoric Moves is Multiplayer ONLY as I’m more of a solo gamer :-(

PS+ = PSN Garbage Day
won’t be re-subscribing to this again
nor should anyone else.
give me features and options and maybe i’ll re-subscribe
i don’t want to fill my HDD with games that don’t sell at all or unwanted content

+ Strathmore on December 2nd, 2010 at 7:53 am said:

Great. Another set of games I already own. Way to go Sony. Sure makes me feel like I’m getting my money’s worth. I’ll group this with the Qore subscription I already paid for, and the previous 75% of titles I already bought as a loyal PlayStation customer previous to Plus.

And what kills me is that you didn’t implement ANY rebate system whatsoever for the loyal gamers like me that supported you previously. What a waste of my money.

Now I hesitate to buy ANY new games for fear you’ll arbitrarily add them to the PlayStation Plus list later?

All I have to show for my Plus is some lame themes. And because there is a theme cap on each system, I usually can’t even download them without having to delete previous themes. Lame.

PlayStation Plus? Never again.

Oh, and that voice chat is great… Morons.

You’ve had half a year to add one… any reason you completely ignore this entire genre?

I want Crash Team Racing only!!! not Crash Team Racing!!! tsk!!!! fail!

+ BinaryJay on December 2nd, 2010 at 8:02 am said:

Thank you for listening to us and coming through with the Sam & Max content that was offered in the EU! I’m finally excited about a Plus publish.

My feelings about the recycling of content are not as warm, though. Hopefully this doesn’t happen with any frequency as it’s just kicking the people that have been subscribers since the start.

+ RockToonz on December 2nd, 2010 at 8:02 am said:

sorry double post… ” not Crash Tag Team Racing! “

+ Synchrotronator on December 2nd, 2010 at 8:56 am said:

I’d really like to download Sam & Max, but I don’t want my 7 year old to play it and I can’t block it out with parental controls without also blocking out Lego Star Wars. Oh well, I guess I’ll play it in a few years.

+ secularsage on December 2nd, 2010 at 9:09 am said:

Grace – you have GOT to implement some sort of voucher system for people who are getting free content they’ve already purchased. Otherwise, what you’re going to start training PS+ members to do is to hold off on purchases of PSN games because they’ll reason that they’re going to get the games for free soon anyhow.

I picked up Sam and Max earlier this year, so this is tremendously disappointing news to me and all of the other folks out there who have tried to support quality titles. When you give away a game that PS+ owners have already bought, it would make sense to offer some sort of voucher for an alternate title.

I realize that the difference is that we who purchased get to keep the game even if PS+ subscriptions lapse, but seriously… that’s not a good way to take care of your loyal customers.

I wish psplus has 1 month subscription option :Don’t you think 3 months is kinda long. Id pay a bit more than a one-third $20 for 1 month option. And BTW for those who are not sure wheter PSPlus is a good idea wish Sony kep a 15 day trial subscribtion for less cost.

I’m also glad to see this coming out for PS+ member for free my wife and I are going to have a blast! Thanks so much MM & Sony.

Just an FYI for those with questions about when a certain piece of content will expire. Just highlight the item and press the triangle button and then select information. It will tell you how long the license is for. I’ve seen all the avatars, DLC and themes have no expiration so you can keep them without a Plus sub.

+ ElektroDragon on December 2nd, 2010 at 11:27 am said:

Alright! Sam & Max! Finally a good reason to join Plus! Now please offer Siren: Blood Curse and Tekken 5 Dark Resurrection.

My 154 cents…

Free stuff:
Sackboy Prehistoric Moves $5.99
Tron skin $0 – Pleased, but of no real value.
Hustle Kings avatars $0 – Pleased but wouldn’t have paid.
Qore 31 $1 – Value estimate based on sub renewal price and not getting subscriber bonuses.
Sam & Max $0 – Have it.
Fieldrunners $0 – Have it from last time.
Crash Tag Team Racing $5.99 – Cool.
Home item $0 – Don’t care.
Total free stuff: $12.98

Discounts:
Marvel, Flow PSP $0 – Gonna pass.
Tomb Raider III $2.99
Galaxy Fight $2.99 – Can’t resist.
Total: $5.98

So for this update (across 2 weeks), my 154 cents gets me $18.96 worth of free stuff and discounts which is a return of 1,231%

MARK “FLIPPIN” WAHLBERG??!!!! R U Kidding me?!! Do u WANT the movie to succeed? guess not. i love u Sony. Thanks for the awesome games and Playstation Plus is working out great, but how in the hell did this get ok’d?!! Very disappointing. I assure you tht fan boys are flippin out everywhere. There isn’t ANYTHING to look forward in tht article the Los Angeles Times published about the upcoming film. I’m so upset. It should have just stayed a video game series in the first place. But the fact that not only are they going through with this movie nonsense, but, sadly it really seems like it’s bound to bomb. Very sad day. *sigh* First Max Payne and now…

Cripes, I just signed up for PS+ this week after finally seeing games I don’t own getting good discounts or being put up for free for subscribers, and December is going to be the icing on the cake.

Hope to see other pushes like this in the future as it really helps justify signing up for those still on the fence.

I literally just joined PS+ because of this update. I’m very happy with Shatter, Hustle Kings, and Sam & Max. I’ve been wanting to download all three for awhile and this was a very nice surprise, plus Oddworld and the Prototype full game trial are awesome bonuses. I already feel like I’ve gotten my money’s worth (and more to come) and I just subscribed yesterday.

Thanks Sony =)

+ DazeOfWar on December 3rd, 2010 at 10:44 pm said:

I think this will be the worst PS+ update for me.

I already own Sam & Max just like every other PSN game that has been offered since day one. Hopefully one day I will get something I don’t already own. I could care less about Crash Team Racing. Giving us Fieldrunners again is a joke. Game was fun for 10 minutes and then didn’t give a crap anymore.

Also no responses for everybody’s questions from the terrible blog team like always is getting really annoying. Come on people do your job and give us some answers once and a while. You would have this job if it wasn’t for us consumers.

It is nice to finally see some free avatars again. I will also enjoy LBP game so that is a plus. DLC on the other hand is lame this month and hasn’t been worthwhile since the first month with the KZ2 map packs even though I had already owned those too.

Sony you really need to pull out some good stuff before my year is up if you want me to resubscribe. So far everything you have given away I have already owned or could care less about. Minis are lame and the PSone games have only had 3 good ones worth a damn.

I really love my PS3 but I’m losing my excitement for Plus.

+ Gameboy415 on December 4th, 2010 at 8:31 am said:

Sounds like a fantastic update – I’ll be downloading nearly everything! :D

However, can you clarify which Crash racing game we’re getting?

-Crash Team Racing for PS1 (currently $5.99 on PSN)
-Crash TAG Team Racing for PS2/PSP (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crash_Tag_Team_Racing)

Thanks and keep up the great work!

Thank you for getting us the Sam and Max. Sooo much complaining with every update announcement and half those complaining dont even subscribe. I’m an original subscriber and am very happy. I never would have purchased the smaller games like burn zombie burn or shatter but have had a blast playing them. I’m also loving Killzone 3 beta and I plan to give psn+ as a gift.

Lighten up people membership is optional

Score, my question got posted on a blog post!

Now for the reality of it. I’m a huge Sony fan but like others have said you don’t really tell us anything. You clarified that Field Runners was given out and then you recycled and apparently plan to continue to do so and that is where the problem is.

As a loyal Sony customer I own a PS3, PSP and utilize the store very often. I was a day 1 purchaser of your new program, PS+ and have enjoyed it. That being said you gave Field Runners as a free title and then went and gave it out again. I’ve essentially already paid for the title, why should I pay for it again just so someone who didn’t have the ability or want to sign up earlier can get it? In this case offer up Field Runners again, note that it was previously given out in the past (don’t try to slip it past us) and then offer another title free for those of us who already got it.

Based on your currently logic you could offer a one year subscription, give new titles out for six months and repeat those titles the last six months of the year and use your current excuse as to why your doing it. That doesn’t fly, and while I don’t think you’d slap us in the face that hard by doing it like you did you steer down that path.
